Smoked Slow Cooker Pork Ribs

Oh myyyyyyyy.

Bruce and I really have been trying to push ourselves to try new things in the kitchen lately so this morning (we both have Mondays off now!) we looked through our slow cooker cookbook and came across this recipe:

The recipe was called "Fall-Off-The-Bone Ribs" - we played around with a lot of the seasonings and spices to create a much more smoky flavor.  It was incredible!  Here's the recipe ...

Smoked Slow Cooker Pork Ribs

2 1/2 pounds Pork Baby Back Ribs, skinned
1/8 cup Paprika
1/8 cup Cumin
1/8 cup Seasoned Salt
1 tablespoon Salt
1 tablespoon Pepper
1 can (20 ounces) Beer
1 quart Barbeque Sauce
1/3 cup Honey
White Sesame Seeds & Sliced Chives (for garnish)

Start by combining all of your seasonings ... 

 Add the sugar and whisk everything together.

Rub both sides of the meat with the seasoning.

Now it's time to sear the meat!  We used the grill, but you could easily use a griddle on the stove.

3 minutes on both sides.

Once the meat comes off the grill, cut it into pieces with 3-4 ribs each.

This is done mostly so you can fit everything into the slow cooker. :)

Pour in your beer ... 

Cover and let cook on high for two hours.

Once the meat has cooked for two hours, combine your barbeque sauce and honey.

*Honey Tip! Pour hot water on the measuring cup before putting the honey into it. It won't stick to the sides.

Pour the mixture over the meat.

And let cook on high for another 1 1/2 - 2 hours.

The one thing we noticed when it was almost time to eat was that the sauce was very thin and runny - and we wanted something to drizzle over the meat!  So 15 minutes or so before you are ready to eat, pull some of the sauce out of the slow cooker and put it in a skillet on the stove.  Throw some cornstarch to thicken it up a little bit - and then add salt and pepper for flavor.

Your garnish ... 

Your sauce ... 


Yes.  Yes, please!

Bruce is already excited about taking leftovers for lunch tomorrow.  Amazing.  Enjoy!
